The Lone Star College Catalog [Student Conduct, Section 562.01d] states, “Disruptive
activity that hinders other students’ learning or deters an instructor from effective
teaching will not be tolerated under any circumstances.”
Students often drop a course when help is available. Please discuss your plans with the
instructor if you feel the need to withdraw, and he/she will try to work with you so you
can successfully complete the course.
Withdrawal from a course after the official day of record will result in a mark of “W” on
the student’s transcript and no credit will be awarded for the course(s). If a student
registers and pays for a course(s) it is the student’s responsibility to drop/withdraw before
the “W” date.
(Catalog description of District Withdrawal Policy: http://www.lonestar.edu/108227.pdf)
In order to withdraw from the course and receive a “W” on your
transcript, you must withdraw on, or before: November 6, 2009!!!
While every attempt has been made to prepare this syllabus and class schedule in final
form, it will be the instructor's prerogative to make any changes as may be deemed
necessary in order to meet the learning outcomes of the course. Students will be notified

The district upholds the core values of learning; honesty, respect, fairness, and
accountability. The district promotes the importance of personal and academic honesty.
The district embraces the belief that the learners, students, faculty, staff and
administrators will act with integrity and honesty and must produce their own work and
give appropriate credit to the work of others. Fabrication of sources, cheating, or
unauthorized collaboration is not permitted on any work submitted within the district.
Consequences for academic dishonesty determined by the professor, or the professor and
academic dean, or the professor and chief student services officer can include but are not
1. Having additional class requirements imposed;
2. Receiving a grade of zero or “F” for an exam or assignment;
3. Receiving a grade of “F” for the course;
4. Being withdrawn from the course or program;
5. Being expelled from the college district;
Professors should clearly explain how the student’s actions violated the academic
integrity policy, how a grade was calculated, and the action taken.
Lone Star College Academic Integrity Policy: http://www.lonestar.edu/17997/
Law strictly prohibits unauthorized copying of software purchased by Lone Star College
– Montgomery for use in laboratories. Lone Star College – Montgomery administration
will take appropriate disciplinary action against anyone violating copyright laws.
Computer Virus Protection
Computer viruses are, unfortunately, a fact of life. Using the diskettes on more than one
computer creates the possibility of infecting computers and diskettes with a computer
virus. This exposes the computers of the campus, your personal computer, and any others
you may be using to potentially damaging viruses. The campus has aggressive anti-virus
procedures in place to protect its computers, but cannot guarantee that a virus might not
temporarily infect one of its machines. It is your responsibility to protect all computers
under your control and use and ensure that each diskette you use, whenever or wherever
you use it, has been scanned with anti-virus software. Since new viruses arise continually,
your anti-virus software must be kept current. And, since no anti-virus software will find
every virus, keeping copies of data (backups) is extremely important.

Vice Chancellor for Human Resources is designated as the district's Equal Opportunity
